For the second straight game, the Union failed to put away a shorthanded opponent. Javier Morales' penalty kick in stoppage time hit the post and bounced across the goal mouth into the net past a helpless Zac MacMath to salvage a 2-2 tie for 10-man Real Salt Lake (10-5-4) in Sandy, Utah, on Wednesday night. The Union had taken the lead on Sebastien Le Toux's goal in the 13th minute off a Conor Casey pass. Real defender Lovel Palmer was shown a red card and sent off in the 59th minute for a late challenge on Michael Farfan.

Before Wednesday, the last time the Union played to a draw it felt like a loss. Yet, after Wednesday's 1-1 tie at PPL Park with defending Major League Soccer champion Real Salt Lake, there was a much different feeling. In fact, following Sunday's 3-1 loss at FC Dallas, the Union (4-10-4) received some needed confidence by earning the draw with Real Salt Lake, a team battling to defend its MLS championship. Actually, it's been the toughest stretch of the season for the Union and it continues with Saturday's 4 p.m. game at PPL Park against the Colorado Rapids (7-5-6)

The 16th MLS season begins in earnest this weekend with parity as the buzz word. The first game took place on Tuesday, when the Los Angeles Galaxy earned a 1-0 win in Seattle against Sounders FC. The remaining 16 MLS teams will open their season on Saturday. That includes the Union, who visit Houston to meet the Dynamo. As the opening game suggested, the Galaxy and their star-studded lineup that includes David Beckham and Landon Donovan and has added high-scoring Juan Pablo Angel (who missed the opener because of illness)

With 12 games left in this Major League Soccer season it might be too early for the Union to begin to panic, but the team's recent play has to cause legitimate concern. The Union are now 1-4-1 in their last six MLS games following Sunday's 2-1 loss to Real Salt Lake (RSL) before 18,091 at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester. The Union (8-8-6, 30 points) are four points ahead of Orlando, which holds the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference. (The top six will make the playoffs.) The Union squandered a 1-0 halftime lead while falling to 7-2-3 at home.

Peanut butter and jelly. Fish and chips. Cheese and pretty much anything. The point? These ingredients complement each other to near perfection, just like Union forwards Sebastien Le Toux and Danny Mwanga. It was a reunion of sorts last night for Le Toux and the rookie Mwanga, who didn't seem to be feeling the effects of an ankle injury that kept him out of action for the last three matches. Against defending Major League Soccer champion Real Salt Lake and without forward Alejandro Moreno - not in the lineup because of an international callup for his native Venezuela in a match against Panama - the Union emerged with a 1-1 tie, fueled by an early Mwanga goal, in the eighth minute.

UNION FORWARD Maurice Edu scored in the 90th minute to give Philadelphia a 2-2 tie with Real Salt Lake at PPL Park on Saturday. Andrew Wenger, acquired last week in a trade with Montreal, opened the scoring for the Union (1-1-4) in the 55th minute, assisted by Vincent Nogueira. Union goalkeeper Mac MacMath made five saves against Real Salt Lake (2-0-4). "We played some good soccer throughout the game," Union manager John Hackworth said. "We possessed the ball, went side to side and made them do a lot of work.

SANDY, Utah - If the Union were going to turn things around in time to break into the Major League Soccer playoffs, Saturday night would have been a good moment. But coming off nearly two weeks of rest and playing against a Real Salt Lake side missing eight players to injuries and international duty, the Union failed to capitalize on their opportunities, falling 2-1 at Rio Tinto Stadium. The Union fell behind in the 18th minute when Real Salt Lake captain Kyle Beckerman bounced a short corner off teammate Paulo Araujo Jr., made a looping run around the penalty box, and, finding no challengers, took an open shot from deep outside the 18 past late-diving Union goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon.
